Barnard Pre-College Programs & the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As of April 14, 2020, Summer 2020 Pre-College Programs are being moved online. Our team thanks you for your patience during this confusing time. We are excited to engage our students in an unforgettable summer learning experience and bring New York City to you.

All applicants and currently enrolled students will receive an email on 4/15/2020 detailing the shift to online learning, enrollment verification paperwork, and information on refunds. Students will receive a refund if they have paid an amount more than our new reduced tuition price or if they do not wish to attend PCP online this summer. 

Prospective students, PCP continues to welcome your applications! We still have spots open in most of our institutes and classes. Apply now.

In the coming weeks, our office will providing more resources on our website and social media to answer students questions about our new virtual summer community. As always, please feel free to email our office at with any questions or concerns. 

Please be assured that Barnard College is proactively working to monitor the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to address potential health and safety impacts to our community. Given the uncertainties of this rapidly evolving situation, we encourage you to visit the Barnard COVID-19 Guidance website regularly for updates and information.
